Nice Buns

At this unassuming Chinatown bakery, I saw a bun behind the counter that I had never seen before- pork jerky with spring onion. This turned out to be a fancy way of saying dried pork and scallion bun. But it was absolutely delicious and under $1.50. Don't forget to zap it in the microwave for about 20 seconds to get in the maximum flavor zone.

  1. That's dried stringy pork that I used to eat as a snack as a kid. I used to put in between white bread, in porridge, and on top of rice. Now, I've been seeing it more on bakery buns. Oooh, fond memories.
